Fiddling, Quilting and History at West Hylebos Saturday August 8th!

On Saturday, August 8th from 12:30 to 2:00 the Washington Old Time Fiddlers will be performing at the historic Denny and Barker cabins.

Sponsored by the Historical Society of Federal Way, The Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association is a non-profit Organization organized in May 1965.  It is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Old-Time Fiddling and the many associated arts.  With around 1100 members statewide, we have talented musicians from 5 years old into the 90's. 

The Federal Way Crazy Quilters will also be demonstrating quilting and have quilt displays available for the public.

The historic Denny and Barker cabins were built in the late 1800’s and restored by the Historical Society of Federal Way. The cabins represent regional and local histories and will be open from 12:00 – 4:00.  Docents will be on hand for the public to tour these restored cabins. Children’s crafting will also be featured.

The event location is at West Hylebos Wetlands Park at 4th Ave S. and S. 348th St in Federal Way.
